About 9020 Valleyview Drive
Coming up Valleyview Drive with the picturesque River Valley floating by to the East and a neighbourhood of beautiful architecturally diverse homes to the West, you’ll arrive at Valleyview | 9020 overcome by the stunning bank of floor to ceiling windows that span the entire length of the home’s second story. The curved face is framed by beautiful landscaping, thoughtfully designed to mimic the adjacent river with beds of rocks that carve out a path for a stream of indigo vegetation.
Making your way up to the home’s front entrance you are greeted by a joyful front door plated with steel, accented with colourful handmade glass inlay. Beyond the foyer you enter through a set of double doors made from Rosewood with a centre of endangered ebony, stepping into a column of natural light beaming down from a third floor skylight. The sunlight illuminates a sparkling waterfall that extends 28 feet into the air. Flanked by solid flamed granite on either side, the waterfall features a handmade glass centre depicting the colours of the ocean, providing a calm serenity throughout all three floors of the home.
The home encompasses more than 7372 square feet of finished living space. Structurally all three floors are built with a cantilever design . Columns that support each floor above it are hidden within the walls for a minimalistic appearance — that also maximizes the ability for the home’s design and layout to remain fluid with few physical boundaries. Beyond the falls, guests enter the rest of the purposefully laid out main floor space, with multiple seating areas, a
formal dining room with space for a twelve seat dining table, a half bath and a chef’s kitchen custom designed for catering large scale events. The space is outfitted with luxury appliances, solid slab granite countertops, and a side entrance giving staff excellent access from the rear side of the property.
As you ascend to the second level of the home, resting your hand on the smooth solid wood cap of the stair railing, an accent of jet black ebony runs through the centre. This grade of ebony is a lavish feature that comes from the centre core of the tree. Since the home was built, ebony has become endangered and can no longer be imported into the city, so it’s a truly unique and a priceless accent. The railings also contain handmade bijoux glass panels, these pieces locally made using two plates of glass sandwiched on either side of raw copper and coloured with dye to create an artful pattern
Turning a door handle made from more of the precious jet black ebony, you enter a staircase to the third floor where you’ll find a study and
the master suite . Coming up the stairs you are immediately drawn outwards to a terrace that rooftop patio dreams are made of . Stepping out onto the sprawling 460 square foot space you take in the views from the highest patio on Valleyview Drive . With the warm glow of a fireplace to your left the stunning view seems to span the entire length of the North Saskatchewan river. It’s a breathtaking sight, with golden rays bouncing back off the high rises of Edmonton’s downtown core at sunset
Industrial style suspension, pins it's way along the length of the skylight at the very peak of the home's dormered cap. These cool steel elements provide both a design element as well as a more practical purpose, supporting the weight of all twelve of the skylight panels. Eye catching architectural angles, the mix of raw materials and natural elements from the water and sun framed by stark white walls give the space an art gallery feel with all the warmth of a traditional home
An elevator runs from the third floor all the way down to the basement, where you’ll find another two bedrooms and full bathroom, making this the perfect home that can adapt to your lifestyle at every stage. The attached four car garage on this level leads into the spa-like clubhouse style cloakroom complete with five separate built-in closets to hang your hat when you arrive home
